One of the most powerful and important features of LiveWebDJ is it's ability to allow, and manage, remote DJ broadcasts. With LiveWebDJ, there is no need to shut down LiveWebDJ in order to broadcast live. We provide your own private IP & port for a DJ to connect their encoder to. When a DJ is connected and streaming to your private IP & port, LiveWebDJ will fade into the DJ's broadcast. When the DJ disconnects, LiveWebDJ will fade back into rotation. During switchovers, LiveWebDJ will not interrupt your stream so you will not lose any listeners due to connection loss or buffering.
DJ Access Features
- Enter a unique username and password for each DJ.
- DJ's higher up in the list have a higher priority over DJ's below them.
- You can optionally record DJ broadcasts automatically for each DJ.
- DJ's can broadcast in MP3 or AAC+ format, at any bitrate (higher the better).
DJ Access Benefits
- If a DJ forgets to shut off their encoder, and they go beyond their alloted time, or are accidentally broadcasting dead air, you can simply remove that DJ's DJ Access account, and they will be immediately kicked off.
- There's no need to change all your passwords anytime a DJ decides to leave your station. You can simply delete their account.
- By recording a DJ's broadcasts, you can download it to your computer for editing (to catch an interview, for example) or have it re-aired at a later date on a scheduled playlist.
- When a DJ connects from their computer to broadcast a live show, LiveWebDJ automatically stops rotation and fades into the broadcast. When the DJ disconnects when they are done with their live show, LiveWebDJ fades back to rotation where it left off.
- You can create an Event to "blackout" all DJ's ability to broadcast for a specific duration. This is useful for making sure a separate event takes place no matter what.
What Information Do I Need To Provide My DJs?
- "Encoder Settings" from the "DJ Access" link from the left hand menu:
- Server Type (This Will Always Be Shoutcast v1)
- IP Address
- Port Number
- That DJ's password. Note: A DJ's password is a combination of their username and password, separated by a colon. (ie username:password)
- The DJ should broadcast in either MP3 or AAC+ format.
- Recommended Bitrates are MP3: 128k - AAC+: 64k -- however the higher bitrate they broadcast at, the higher quality their broadcast will be.
